Renos and Designs
My love for decorating and interior design started at a very young age. My mother loved to decorate and was constantly moving furniture around or busy painting something. You could never walk around our house in the dark, something was always moving! I loved seeing how paint and furniture placement could easily transform a space. I have a love of learning and I wanted to be able to further help my clients when it came to staging for sale or purchasing homes that need renovations, in 2018 I enrolled in online classes with The Interior Design Institute and graduated with my Diploma in the spring of 2019.
My husband discovered a passion for construction when we started doing major renovations on our first home. He was working as a Cad Cam Engineer Tech so it played nicely into the drafting and mathematical side of renovations. His natural perfectionism, pride of work, and quality is evident in everything he does. He started his own company in 2014, Rally Contracting, and he has been in high demand since its inception. The best part is that whatever is designed, he can make happen!
12 Things You Didn’t Know About Me
1 I played ladies football
for 8 years in Saskatoon and it was my obsession. (I was so sad when I couldn’t find any local, ladies teams in Red Deer – maybe I’ll start a league one day)
2 My heart is in the mountains.
One of the reasons we moved out this way. Take me to ALL the waterfalls.
3 I love to plan parties or events
and I go over the top with decorations and food.
4 I have always wanted to be a Realtor
I fall deeper in love with my career each time I see the happiness and excitement on my clients faces.
5 I have owned a ridiculous amount of furniture
I love to redecorate and buy and sell furniture. My mother in law has been the recipient of several items. She came over not long ago and complemented our new kitchen table. My husband’s response was “wait a month and it will be for sale.”
6 I love to paint.
We lived in our previous home for 2 years and I repainted twice. Cloverdale LOVES me!
7 I LOVE to snowboard
My husband taught me shortly after we started dating and it quickly became one of my favorite winter pastimes. We have passed that along to our son who started snowboarding when he was two.
8 I have been SkyDiving and Hot Air Ballooning
You would never catch me doing that now, but it was a great experience.
9 I love to give
I enjoy making people feel special with surprise gifts or planning parties.
10 My love for Real Estate
might stem from moving 9 times before I graduated.
11 My little family rides dirt bikes
My husband is an avid motocross rider, my son is just getting into it and I have a bike, so I am not left out of the fun…
12 I am famous for starting renovations
“let’s just see what’s behind this wall, or under this carpet” Luckily, I am married to someone who can finish said renovations.
Our First Home!!
Our Second Home.
Our Third home.
Our Current home.
We listed our house in Saskatoon on our 5-year wedding anniversary. It sold the same day and just like that, we were homeless as we had not found a place in the Red Deer area, where we thought we were going to settle. However, nothing was feeling right and after several failed trips, we decided to broaden our search to include Sylvan Lake. When we drove into Sylvan Lake it was an experience that is hard to describe. Both Ryden and I instantly fell in love and knew this is exactly where we were meant to be. We ended up finding a bungalow with a lot of potential, on a huge lot that had TWO garages (this is why my husband does not want to move – he is in garage glory) Fast forward two years and we are still so in love with our little town. We will eventually be doing a full renovation on this home and I plan on taking you all along, so stay tuned!
I started selling Real Estate in 2010 under Hallmark Realty & Associates, an independent firm in Saskatoon, SK that was later bought out by Royal Lepage. I loved working with everyone at the office and they were all so generous in sharing their experience with the new “rep.” With alot of hard work, dedication and guidance I was a top producing agent at the office for years. I achieved my goal of Top Producer in 2016. A proud moment shared with colleagues and many happy customers!
My husband, Ryden and I had been talking about moving to Central Alberta for years. In 2017 we made the decision to chase our dreams. I knew I wanted to stay under the Royal LePage umbrella, so it was a natural fit to join Royal LePage Network Realty. It is such a great office to work at and I want to thank everyone for taking me under their wing. I look forward to growing a successful business in Central Alberta.

Alyss has a smile and personality that could melt anyone's heart!! Her confidence in her experience as a Realtor, was very evident as we went through the homes. She drew our attention to any flaws, and positives, as we walked through the many homes. Alyss was
very patient, and never left us feeling rushed. We had ample time to go through each home, and get a feel for the home, to see if it was the one.

"Alyss Gehl was our realtor when we purchased our first home, so when we later on decided to upgrade and sell that home we knew we could trust her once again. We really appreciated her knowledge and communication through the whole process. She had great suggestions for staging, kept us informed about showings and the interest in our house, and shared feedback from prospective buyers.
Alyss made what could have been a stressful experience seem more manageable with her easy going, patient, and reassuring personality.
She is the type of person that gets along with everyone and is dedicated to helping her clients understand the process and feel at ease. It was clear that she truly cared about making the experience a positive one for us and in the end we sold our house and we were able to buy the house that we had our eye on. We are thankful for the multiple opportunities we had to use Alyss as our realtor as she did a wonderful job each and every time!"

I would 100% recommend Alyss, she has great knowledge of many aspects, and is always learning new things to help her clients more! We are so grateful for the day we met her, and now we have our first home!"
